Charge Integrity: Proactively Correct Claim Errors
Uncover Hidden Revenue and Ensure Charge Accuracy
Hospitals and health systems lose an estimated 1% of net revenue annually due to an inability to identify claim coding errors that contribute to charge capture leakage. ZirMed’s Charge Integrity solutions automate the discovery of hidden revenue opportunities and overcharges to ensure your staff can proactively correct claim errors for accurate reimbursement and coding compliance.
ZirMed’s missing charge detection solution allows you to detect missing claim codes for both institutional and professional charges.
ZirMed’s coding variance detection solution assesses each account for CPT, HCPCS, and ICD-10 code sets to identify incorrectly coded claims and detect coding variance based on account contradictions between institutional and professional charges.
ZirMed’s Charge Integrity solution allows you to detect over-coded claims by evaluating charges at the line-item level. You can also proactively audit your claims to identify claim overcharges. Charge Integrity does this by scrutinizing quantities, determining whether claims should have been bundled, examining medical necessity policies, and identifying charges posted in error.
ZirMed’s DRG anomaly detection allows you to identify incorrectly coded claims based on a DRG anomaly.
Improve Financial Viability
Predictive analytics, data-mining, and automated rule-based audits interrogate your claims to prevent missing charges, duplicate charges, overcharges, and improperly-coded DRGs. ZirMed’s PhD credentialed data scientists fuel the algorithms and modeling intelligence behind the technology that expedites the review of hundreds of claims per minute in real-time. This helps you identify accounts with a high probability of charge issues so you can prioritize them based on the impact to net revenue.
